Product Details


“Blackburn is particularly good at disentangling the different dynamics that make the pensions problem so intractable for mature, ageing economies.”—Sir Howard Davis, Guardian

“Blackburn does an excellent job of tracing recent developments.”—Economist

“If Karl Marx were alive today, he would be in the British Library devouring everything he could find on pension funds: the new fuel of global capitalism. Robin Blackburn has read everything, and in this urgent and brilliant book, proposes a new strategy that unites workers of the world around the democratic control of their savings.”—Mike Davis

“One of the best books I have read on pension funds.”—Independent

“… required reading for all those interested in the pensions industry. That is, all of us.”—Barry Marshall

“In stormy waters and under darkening skies, Banking on Death stands like a lighthouse, providing a beam of orientation on a solid rock of research.”—Goran Therborn

“This is an important and disturbing book. Blackburn is a master of the complexities of pension provision. He unsettles belief in a commercial fix to the challenge of social insurance.”—Richard Sennett

“Plenty of food for thought.”—Times Literary Supplement
